Precious Girl Needs a Home and Medical Care

There is a beautiful tiny little girl in Liberia who desperately needs a home. Her name is Mama and she is 3 yrs old. She has been living for quite some time on IV liquids (not even a pick line - not great nutrition at all) because she swallowed a caustic soda which left chemical burns and scarring in her throat. Her condition is quite severe. In fact, it's likely she will die in Liberia if she is not adopted quickly, but she could be treated and live a relatively normal life in the US. If there is a family out there who is I-600 ready, would you consider this little girl? You can see her picture at http://www.untilallhavehomes.org/Africa.html - her little arms are so skinny - she simply can't eat. I can connect you with more information about her condition and a Mommy whose daughter is in a similar situation. Just let me know if you would like to know more.

HANK YOU for spreading the word about Mama, she is SUCH a doll, and she is in my prayers nightly. I have her on my prayer blog as well. As soon as Ann or Polly have a family for her I will let you know.

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at xawilsons@hotmail.com. Much obliged, I'm sure.
